The mini-series will be a sci-fi adaptation of Noah's Ark from The Book of Genesis with art from Nico Henrichon. Darren Aronofsky's hope is to turn this illustrated, biblical reboot into his next project. And his inspirations, oddly enough, sprang from watching the 1976 Sunn Pictures documentary In Search of Noah's Ark as a kid, of which he says, "I'm a huge fan."
But don't expect a clean-cut tale as told in Sunday School. Darren Aronofsky has ambitious ideas for this version of the man who saved all the animals of the world from an apocalyptic flood.
"(He was the) first environmentalist. (The) first person to plant vineyards, drink wine and get drunk. I was stunned going back and realizing how dirty some of those stories are. They're not PG in any way. They're all about sleeping with your brother's sister who gives you a child who you don't know. That kind of stuff got censored out of our religious upbringing."
